Premier League giants Manchester United have got off to a horror start in their Premier League campaign and their worst run in Premier League history does not seem to end anytime soon. The future of their current manager Ole Gunna Solskjaer seems to be on the line here since the manager is unable to make an impact with the Red Devils.
Reports from England are hinting that the management at Manchester United is willing to back the manager to make a team for the future and even provide him with enough budget to improve the squad in the forthcoming transfer windows. However, a massive defeat against Liverpool can change everything for the manager.
This is because United will be up against the table-toppers Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, 20 October and recent form suggests that Manchester United may experience a massive defeat against them.
Liverpool have won each of their last 17 Premier League matches- eight of them coming this season alone. On the other hand, Manchester United have not even scored more than one goal in a match after their opening match this season. Chances are that Manchester United may experience a heartbreaking loss against Liverpool.
If the Red Devils management indeed decide to sack Solskjaer, in case his men lost against Liverpool, they will have to spend as much as £7 million as a pay-off. United had paid around £19.6 million to Jose Mourinho after he was sacked from the club last season.
The decision will depend on whether or not the Norwegian manages to turn the fortune of the Manchester United team. The much-anticipated match against Liverpool could prove to be a good opportunity for the Manchester United team to get their campaign back on track.
